Hello all I am fairly new to bonsai. My dad has been doing it for some years but about 8 months ago i decided to go all in. My trees still need lots of work. I think i got some decent material but I hope you guys could tell me your honest opinion. I have crapapple,ume,shimpaku varieties include tosho,Itoigawa,one so called sierra juniper, and another western juniper but not sure on the last two.I also have a maple variety small leaf and an olive. I really like shimpaku and ume so if any of you guys know where I can get more ume varieties I have a pink but recently acquired its the chewed up one and a omoi no mame white flower. If you guys could just give me your input would really appreciate it. I also got a lot of my trees from a older couple who have thousand trees probably and are neglect so i am sure that some of them need to be repotted.

Looks like you have some good material to work with. Let us know what state or country you are in so we can give specific advice to your climate. It's a lot of trees so might start some specific threads for questions. I'd like to see more angles on your olive, it looks like it has good potential.

Cheers!

Sorry it took me a while to figure how to even post this one hahaha. I live in Woodside Ca which is about 30 minutes or so from San Francisco. I will take more pics of olive in the morning to try to take better pics. Thank you hemmy.

Well given your location you should be able to find some good ume stock. If you don't get a response here, you might try posting under the subject 'looking for Ume in bay area'

You could, the main thing is put ume the title. I think most regulars read the posts using the 'new posts' feature so you'look have to hook them with the title!

I read Pic Dump Wrong at first.....
So it sounded like self pleasure.

Welcome to Crazy!

That literate looking I think Shimp makes me want to "read the title wrong".

Nice!

Welcome to the forum, and looks like you've got plenty to keep you busy! If you visit your profile page, you'll be able to put your location there, so it'll show up under your name. That way location specific advice can be given.
